The Backbone of the Meetings Industry
Destination management companies play a vital role in the meetings and events industry. DMCs exist to help groups of all sizes craft memorable meetings, conferences, incentive trips, retreats, events and more at amazing destinations.
From mountains to cities and everything in between, creative and professional, a destination management company (DMC) is available to assist groups nearly anywhere in Colorado. Several DMCs are based in Denver or along the Front Range and have satellite offices at popular mountain destinations or vice versa. Others have locations at resorts that are well-versed at hosting groups.
The Association of Destination Management Executives International (ADMEI) defines a destination management company as “a professional services company located in its destination and specializes in local expertise and resources” as well as “a strategic partner to provide creative local experiences in event management, tours/activities, transportation, entertainment, and program logistics.”
DMCs can provide an organization’s planning department with extra hands on deck and oversee entire programs or specific pieces of the planning puzzle like transportation, entertainment and team building.
How DMCs Can Work for You
Destination Colorado Meetings’ DMC members have a keen eye for creating well-orchestrated and truly memorable gatherings. Instead of guessing what accommodations, venues, activities, caterers, transportation companies, A/V suppliers, speakers and more will work best for your group in a chosen destination, consider hiring a DMC to make the selection process quicker and easier. With attendees now expecting local experiences to be part of the agenda, DMCs can provide a menu of destination-specific options catered to specific demographics, interests and business goals.
Not sure what insurance you will need for a certain type of event, the best way is to move your group from Denver International Airport to the mountains, or the latest in contract language? A DMC can help. They also can help dial in return on investment (ROI) to demonstrate value of gatherings to upper management and boards of directors. Get in touch with a DMC today.
